Autopopulate a picklist value during record creation

I have to autopopulate a picklist value when i create a custom object record.
That picklist value should be autopopulated when i click create new.Can i do this using trigger?
Yes you can.

Using trigger you can populate the values . but if u want when the user is creating a new record the field should be populated on the page layout, then you need to pass the values in the URL.  
Thank you.So this can be done only with URL Hacking ?
Actually i need to pass the parent record's lookup field value(accountid) to the picklist value on child record.How can i pass the value using URL?
Any help would be highly appreciated!
